Application ID: 5-1634-00022/00021
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Chateaugay, Franklin County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to introduce creosote-treated wood as a fuel substitute for the whole tree and mill residue wood chips currently used as a fuel source.  The use of creosote-treated waste wood products (e.g. railroad ties and utility poles) require the Boralex Chateaugay facility to be permitted as a Solid Waste Incinerator and a Construction and Demolition Debris Processing Facility under the Department's regulations governing Solid Waste Management Facilities.  The creosote-treated waste wood products will be received in both chipped and non-chipped forms.  Non-chipped pieces will be stored on-site and periodically processed into chip form by use of a portable grinder brought to the site by a subcontractor.  Storage and processing will occur within the fuel yard.  The applicant proposes to substitute creosote-treated wood chips for up to 30 percent, by weight, of the total fuel currently used.  Ash residue resulting from the proposed combined fuel sources will continue to meet the requirements for disposal at permitted landfills (currently the landfill operated by the County of Franklin SWMA). A minor modification to the applicant's Article 19 Title V Air Quality permit to authorize limited burning of creosote treated wood in the wood waste fuel supply for the Riley Stoker Boiler at the facility is also under review (DEC #5-1634-00022/00008).  Both applications can be reviewed by making an appointment with the contact person.
